What color is the French wine Beaujolais?
Beaujolais wine generally made of the Gamay grape which has a thin skin and is low in tannins. Beaujolais tends to be a very light-bodied red wine, with relatively high amounts of acidity.
The wine takes its name from the historical Province of Beaujolais, a wine-producing region. The region is known internationally for its long tradition of winemaking, for the use of carbonic maceration, and more recently for the popular Beaujolais nouveau.
